Johansen started Ryan Ellis' game-winning goal in a 3-1 win over Ottawa on Tuesday

EDGE Analysis

Johansen needed this after an ugly minus-4 performance Saturday, and he got back on track nicely with his 21st assist of the season. As long as you can withstand his middling plus-minus numbers, he's a solid option in all formats.

Johansen scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen has 17 points (three goals, 14 helpers) in 16 games. That squarely puts him on pace for his best season yet. It bears saying that Johansen's game has changed dramatically since his early-career focus on goal scoring. Gone are the days of 33 and 26 goals. Instead, Johansen has delivered just 40 goals since arriving in Nashville in 2015-15. Total. There's still plenty of fantasy value here, but know your categories.

Johansen notched three assists in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen has frequently gotten off to slow starts in past seasons, but he's been remarkably consistent so far this year. His 13 points through 11 games represents one of his best-ever starts to a season, and he's only been held off the scoresheet three times during that stretch. He continues to center the Preds' top line between Filip Forsberg (who accounted for all three Nashville goals Saturday) and Viktor Arvidsson, so you can expect more multi-point efforts like this in the weeks and months to come. Enjoy the ride.

Johansen recorded a pair of helpers Tuesday in a 5-4 home loss to San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen has looked good in the early going, tallying nine points in the season's first nine games. In addition to his two assists Tuesday, he registered a team-high five shots on goal, dished out two hits, blocked one shot and picked up a minor penalty. Despite the loss, Johansen's name was all over the scoresheet.

Johansen scored one goal Thursday, potting a third-period marker in a 3-0 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

The center scored a beautiful backhand goal on what was a partial breakaway, beating Jets netminder Connor Hellebuyck top shelf to essentially seal the deal. Johansen is logging heavy minutes for Nashville, having led all forwards in ice time Thursday. The Predators are hopeful he can eclipse the 20-goal mark this season, something he hasn't done since 2014-15.

Johansen lit the lamp twice in Nashville's 5-4 overtime win over Carolina on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Nashville's top center scored his team's first and final goals and appears ready for regular-season action. The Predators hope Johansen can rediscover his scoring touch in 2018-19, the 26-year-old has been unable to eclipse the 20-goal mark since arriving via trade in 2016. Plagued by long bouts of inconsistency in his career, Johansen has scored just 43 goals total in the last three seasons.

Johansen was the primary distributor on P.K. Subban's lone goal in Thursday's 5-1 series loss to the Jets, as the centerman delivered on the power play.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen helped wake up the home crowd in the first period, but it was a fleeting moment of jubilation as the Predators lost in Game 7 at Bridgestone Arena. While Nashville failed to advance to the conference finals, the British Columbia native bestowed 14 points (five goals, nine assists) on his fantasy owners in the playoffs and easily trumped his 0.68 points-per-game output from the regular season.

Johansen fashioned a power-play assist Thursday in a 2-1 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen has been terrific in these playoffs, as he's uncorked four goals and six assists for a point-per-game pace dating back to the conference quarterfinals against the Avalanche.

Johansen had two power-play assists but finished with a minus-3 rating in Tuesday's 7-4 Game 3 loss to Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

While Johansen has picked up the pace offensively with four points in his last two appearances following a three-game dry spell, he's still leaving much to be desired in other categories. He was held without a shot on goal for the third time this postseason and looked overmatched at even strength. Like many of his teammates, Johansen will need to display a more complete two-way effort in Thursday's Game 4 or Nashville will have a tough time tying this series at two games apiece.

Johansen scored two goals in a 5-4 double-overtime win versus the Jets in Sunday's Game 2.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen started the playoffs off with a bang, notching five points in his first four games. However, he had been held pointless for three contests until this outing. With these two goals, though, the pivot has 16 points in his last 19 games.
